This post is the compilation of various lectures in timeline order.
From the Beginning of the creation to Eesa(Jesus) Alayhuwa sallam.
This is taken from lecture “The Lives of the Prophets” delivered by Anwar Al-Awlaki. It is the first such series produced in the English language. The author has done extensive research in the original Arabic resources. The series is based primarily on Ibn Kathir¦s ” Al-Bidayah wa-nihayah (The Beginning and the End)”. Br.
